I have had an inner ear infection and now find myself with tinnitus in one ear. Why is this the case?

Hard to say: Tinnitus is thought to be the result of increased synchronous (neural) discharge from neural pathways of the auditory nervous system in the brain. There is evidence that a middle ear infection, even though it has resolved, could have penetrated into the inner ear to cause some injury to the hair cells of the cochlea. Predicting the outcome of tinnitus is very difficult. See an otologist. ...Read more
